DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Responsibilities – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaimed to the crowd that we are all called to use the abundant gifts and blessings that God has given us, responsibly and in God’s Ways.  Ponder on, “Do we keep God’s blessings of talents, wealth and positions selfishly and fail to use them for God’s Greater Glory?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 19:11a, 12-13, 15-17, 26

While the people were listening Jesus said, ‘A man of noble birth went to a distant country to be appointed king and afterwards return. He summoned ten of his servants and gave them ten pounds, telling them, “Do business with these” he told them “until I get back.” ’

‘Now on his return, having received his appointment as king, he sent for those servants to whom he had given the money, to find out what profit each had made. The first came in and said, “Sir, your one pound has brought in ten.” “Well done, my good servant!” he replied. “Since you have proved yourself faithful in a very small thing, you shall have the government of ten cities.”

‘I tell you, to everyone who has will be given more; but from the man who has not, even what he has will be taken away.’
